9:01 pm
hello, welcome to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. i'm john vause. you're watching "cnn newsroom." and just ahead, the white house walks back joe biden's promise the u.s. would intervene militarily if china attacks taiwan, causing confusion and concern ahead of a summit between the u.s., japan, australia, and india. revenge fantasy. of all the primary races across the u.s., it's the state of georgia where donald trump wants a win for his endorsed candidates. and a love triangle turns into tragedy. an elite cyclist is dead and u.s. marshals now looking for the woman accused of murdering her. live from cnn center, this is "cnn newsroom" with john vause. right now, the second in-person summit of the quad this year is under way in tokyo.
9:02 pm
leaders of this informal alliance between the u.s., japan, australia, and india, will soon head into a working lunch and then one-on-one meetings after that. just a day earlier, the u.s. president launched a new partnership aimed at boosting trade ties with several asia-pacific countries, all part of a push to bolster u.s. alliances in the region and counter china's growing dominance. but for all the formal meetings and photo ops, it's what mr. biden said when he went offscript which is drawing -- >> in conflict militarily for obvious reasons. are you willing to get involved militarily to defend taiwan if it comes to that? >> yes. >> you are? >> that's the commitment we made. >> just moments after that, the white house released a statement downplaying those comments, insisting u.s. policy on china and taiwan has not changed, but beijing is already pushing back, telling the u.s. not to meddle
9:03 pm
in internal affairs. one chinese official warned those who play with fire will certainly burn themselves. cnn covering the story. kevin liptak is covering the events in tokyo. and i'm wondering, kevin, what has been the reaction among the three other leaders of this quad about biden's comments about defending taiwan and the confusion and walking back what happened? >> reporter: yeah, there certainly was some surprise, because the president's comment seemed to sort of rebut this policy of strategic am buy guyty, where the united states will provide defensive weapons but not necessarily spell out how they might respond if china were to invade. now, president biden was just asked in the last several minutes whether the policy of strategic ambiguity was dead and he said no, and he was asked gen again if he would send u.s. troops to taiwan if china were to invade and he didn't spell out what he would do, but he did
9:04 pm
say that u.s. policy hadn't changed. and so now, as you mentioned, if white house did walk back that statement slightly yesterday, but i will say today, when you're talking to president bib bi biden's aides, there's not a lot of conner steconsternation, bec president and his aides feel like there's a different environment now. and they want china to know that as russia proceeds with this invasion and is confronted with this withering set of sanctions, they want that to be seen as a cautionary tale, and they don't necessarily believe it's a negative thing or a bad thing if the president is a little more explicit in his comments about taiwan. and you heard the president talk about ukraine and russia earlier today, as he launched this quad summit meeting. he said that the world is navigating a dark hour in our shared history. and he said that this is more
9:05 pm
than just a european issue, it's a global issue. so, i think that the president is kind of trying to wrap all of this together here on his final day in asia, talking to these leaders and trying to make clear that the global environment is in a different place now that russia has invaded ukraine, that the international norms have been breached and he wants to send a very explicit message to china that something similar could happen to them, this withering set of sanctions, this united response, if they were to move forward in taiwan. >> thank you for that. let's go to stephen, who is standing by in beijing. our beijing bureau chief. stephen, the quad was already seen by beijing as sort of an asia nato, if you like, so, throw in the comments about taiwan and we know they're not happy. >> reporter: that's right. the response has come quickly and forcefully, as you mentioned, not surprisingly, given taiwan is long considered the reddest of their so-called red lines, even though the ruling communist party here has never directly controlled the
9:06 pm
island, they do consider that island part of their territory. that's why they said something like you should never underestimate the resolve and capability of 1.4 billion why need people to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity. so, this is really a very familiar language, as we have heard over the years, but the real question, i think, on the minds of many people, likely chinese officials, but also a lot of observers, analysts, is what next? how many of these slips of the tongues or gaffes from the u.s. president would it take to convince the leadership here that there's a real u.s. policy shift, that the long-standing strategic ambiguity has been replaced by strategic clarity and how would that change the calculations of xi jinping and the communist leadership? because many have said, seems this will probably not deter them from invading taiwan. if anything, this may accelerate their planning and preparation, because as much as beijing hates the comparison between ukraine and taiwan, one likely lesson they have learned from the war
9:07 pm
in ukraine is actually the longer you wait, the harder it may get to take taiwan over by force because taiwan may get more serious about its defenses m and the u.s. may get more serious about helping and preparing taiwan to fight that fight. and then, of course, the question moves to china's military capabilities. now, on paper, of course, the people's liberation army dwarfs taiwan's standing army. there are thousands of chinese missiles deployed along its shoreline targeted at taiwan, but this is a military that's not been come baas tested for over 40 years. the last war they fought was in 1979 with vietnam. so, a lot of questions about their true capabilities, but john, one thing for sure, tensions across the taiwan strait unlikely to subside any time soon. john? >> that is for sure. steven, thank you. also kevin, we appreciate your update. and we'll have much more on the quad summit in about 20 minutes from now. well, ukraine's president --
9:08 pm
ukraine's president says up to 100 people may be killed each day in the eastern part of the country, where russian attacks have intensified in recent weeks. the head of the donetsk regional military administration is reporting heavy fighting in the direction of luhansk. at least one civilian has been killed there, four others were hurt. other nearby towns have been hit by heavy shelling and rocket attacks. this comes as vladimir putin faces growing opposition to the invasion, including from a longtime russian diplomat. in a rare public protest, a 20-year veteran of russia's diplomatic service announced his resignation and blasted what he called an aggressive war unleashed by the russian president. u.s. state department says that resignation shows that russians profoundly disagree with what mr. putin is doing, despite all of the propaganda to the contrary. but there are still questions over the russian president's overall strategy regarding ukraine. with the u.s. defense secretary saying that's just unknown. >> at the very outset, he
9:09 pm
envisioned he was using overwhelming force and speed and power to very rapidly take down the -- the capital city and replace the government. they failed in that, so -- we've seen really proceed at a very slow and unsuccessful place on the -- pace on the battlefield and you would expect that he would -- he would seek to use other levers of power. >> well, the initial plan for a quick victory in ukraine did not work out and now after three months of relentless fighting, this war has hit a milestone of sorts. it did not happen on the battlefield but in a courtroom. a young russian soldier sentenced to life in prison for war crimes. here's the story now from cnn's melissa bell. >> reporter: a blow for the first russian soldier to stand trial in a ukrainian court since the start of the invasion. >> translator: the court finds him guilty. >> reporter: the 21-year-old
9:10 pm
sentenced by a civilian court to life in jail for killing an unarmed civilian in a village in northeastern ukraine four days after russia invaded the country. >> today, more than 13,000 cases about war crimes and now we have first sentence. but it's not enough. it's only beginning. it means these three months, our investigators and prosecutors properly have done their job. >> reporter: he confessed to killing the man in court last week, but said he'd been under intense pressure. a fellow soldier confirmed he was obeying orders and had no choice but to fire the fatal shot. his lawyer says he'll file an appeal. >> translator: i believe and continue to believe that a person who carried out an order cannot be convicted under this article. >> reporter: the judge said, because the crime broke international law, was, quote, against peace, security, and humanity, the court couldn't
9:11 pm
impose a shorter sentence. >> translator: this will be a good example for other occupiers who may not yet be on our territory but are planning to come. those who are here now and plan to stay and fight. >> reporter: on friday, he had made a final plea for clemency. >> translator: i'm sorry and i sincerely repent. i was nervous the moment it happened. i didn't want to kill, but it happened and i do not deny it. >> reporter: the kremlin says it's concerned about him and will seek ways to assist him. melissa bell, cnn, kyiv. with us now for more on the latest developments from ukraine is mark hertling. general, good to have you back. >> great to be with you, john, as always. >> well, the speed of this first war crimes trial in ukraine bringing charges, to the sentencing, while the fighting is still going on, it seems unprecedented. could you see other future
9:12 pm
conflicts following this as an example, while at the same time, is there a risk here that ukrainian soldiers in russian custody would face similar treatment or worse, be tried on trumped up or bogus charges? >> yes and yes. this has been a fast-moving crime and judgment on this young soldier, this 21-year-old tanker, who admittedly shot a civilian, but also, during his trial, basically gave up his superior, saying that he was told to do that. now, that's never a defense, but you can tell by his anxiety, his fear, you know, his concern about what might happen to him if he didn't do what he was told to do, is indicative of the way the russian army is doing things. will ukraine have more of these trials? i think they will. they certainly have a very active group of people investigating war crimes. everything from murder to rape to sexual assault, all the things that you see associated
9:13 pm
with the kind of conflict we're seeing with the russian troops, and that doesn't even start to consider the indiscriminate bombing of cities and the use of civilians as targets. so, yeah, i think you're going to see more of the ukrainian ministries executing these war crimes, trying to put russian soldiers on trial. perhaps even trying them in about sense ya. but as you said, it could be challenging for the ukrainians, as well, because we have these hundreds of fighters coming out of the azovstal steel plant in mariupol and there are indicators that russia is not going to treat them as prisoners of war, which they should be treated, but instead war criminals. and will they trump up charges to go against them? so, i think we're in a very dangerous and precarious position right now, john. >> yeah, well, the russian military has proven to be effective at killing unarmed men, women, and children, when it comes to real soldiers
9:14 pm
actually fight back, the track record hasn't been so great. there's been a flood of headlines like this from britain's "spectator" magazine. inside russia's military collapse in ukraine. "newsweek" is calling this vladimir putin's forever war. the national best explains why size isn't everything. why russia's enormous military can't defeat ukraine. it's not over until it's over, and the russians still have an advantage in terms of military capability, but does there come a time when they run out of missiles, run out of tanks, they run out of soldiers? >> well, you know, it's probably going to take awhile. certainly. and there's a lot of -- a lot of individuals, a lot of analysts saying, you know, the sanctions are already kicking in, it's causing them concern with weapons systems and parts and supplies and logistics, but john, i got to tell you, having fought in conflicts where we thought the enemy was defeated and on his back foot, suddenly, they keep coming up with more and more ammunition, more and more capabilities. so, i learned a long time ago in
9:15 pm
combat, you never, never underestimate the enemy. >> and in his sunday nightly address, the ukrainian president clearly sees this war turning, momentum right now with ukrainian troops. here he is. >> translator: the armed forces of ukraine are deterring this offensive. every day that our defenders take away from these offensive plans of russia, disrupting them, is a concrete contribution to the approach of the main day. the desired day that we are all looking forward to and fighting for. victory day. >> yeah, victory day. never thought it possible just a couple of months ago. if they are able to force russia out of ukraine altogether, what does that mean for the future of russia? there seems to be serious consequences for russia and the world. >> yeah, russia will certainly come out of this fight very different than when they went into it. the other people that are going
9:16 pm
to come out of it are all the western leaders and organizations like the united nations, nato, the european union. there is all -- all of those individuals, all of those collective bolds have to have a reckoning in terms of what's next. this is a new world order, john. this is -- this is not just anymore a fight between ukraine and russia. there's going to be implications on the world stage for this and i would suggest that, well, i know for a fact that nato is addressing those issues, the biden administration is addressing the what's next, and where as mr. zelenskyy is, i think, basically trying to stoke the will of his people with some additional speeches that he's been so good at over the last 89 days. i don't think he's spiking the ball just yet, but he's certainly showing a different face than we saw 89 days ago when there was true concern about the survival of the ukrainian people and nation.
9:17 pm
>> a lot of questions and a lot of this won't be known for weeks, months or years to come, but thank you for your time, sir. good to see you. >> always a pleasure, john, thank you. still ahead, election day for five u.s. states and one battleground with new voting restrictions is actually seeing record turnout. also, another test for trump. he endorsed one candidate for governor in georgia, while his former vice president endorsed another.est an d fastest 5g network. but, they don't. they only cover select cities with 5g. and with coverage of over 96% ofof interstate highway miles, they've got us covered. one e of my favorite supplemes is qunol turmeric. turmeric helps with healthy joints and inflammation support. unlike regular turmeric supplements qunol's superior absorption helpme get the full benefits of turmeric. the brand i trust is qunol.

that at very, very young ages, they were cooks, they were farm hands, they were servants. there's auralia, 4-years old. i have learned a lot about the rest of the family, it was really finding gold. one of my grandfathers, didn't even know his birthdate. i figured out the exact year he was born. the census records fill in gaps, it helped me push the door open. there's a different way to treat hiv. it's every-other-month, injectable cabenuva. for adults who are undetectable, cabenuva is the only complete hiv treatment you can get every other month. cabenuva helps keep me undetectable. it's two injections, given by a healthcare provider every other month. it's one less thing to think about while traveling. hiv pills aren't on my mind. a quick change in my plans is no big deal. don't receive cabenuva if you're allergic to its ingredients or taking certain medicines, which may interact with cabenuva. serious side effects include allergic reactions, post-injection reactions, liver problems, and depression.
9:20 pm
if you have a rash and other allergic reaction symptoms, stop cabenuva and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have liver problems or mental health concerns, and if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or considering pregnancy. some of the most common side effects include injection-site reactions, fever, and tiredness. if you switch to cabenuva, attend all treatment appointments. every other month and i'm good to go. ask your doctor about every-other-month cabenuva. you can framebridge just about anything. and we have.

9:22 pm
test of trump's influence so far. he endorsed former senator david perdue, who is looking to unseat the incumbent, brian kemp. former vice president mike pence campaigned for kemp on monday. trump accused his vp of parachuting into races in a desperate attempt at relevance. but the latest poll show kemp leading purdue by about two to one. >> i am here to support brian kemp in tomorrow's republican primary. i can honestly say, i was for brian kemp before it was cool. >> when you say yes to governor brian kemp tomorrow, you will send a deafening message all across america that the republican party is the party of the future. >> and voting in georgia is already breaking records despite a new election security law which many democrats predicted would suppress turnout. here's cnn's amara walker. >> i never been so excited to stand in line and this has me
9:23 pm
feeling really good and very optimistic that the numbers are in, people do care and we're putting our votes where it counts. >> reporter: georgia primary voters are turning out early in record numbers. >> georgia voters, you know, now they know that the nation looks at them as like a state to pay attention to. >> reporter: during the three-week early voting period that ended last friday, more than 850,000 people cast a ballot in person or by mail in the georgia primaries. a 168% increase compared to the same time period of the 2018 primary. and that increase includes both republicans and democrats. it's good news, says secretary of state brad raffensperger, who is seeking re-election this year. >> as you recall, when we passed the election integrity act of 2021, everyone said it was going to make it hard for people to vote. well, the numbers prove them wrong. >> reporter: the turnout defying predictions from many democrats and voting rights activists that georgia's new voting law could lead to a dropoff in voting. president biden and stacey abrams, who is running unopposed
9:24 pm
in georgia's democratic gubernatorial primary, both likened the bill to jim crow last year. >> we have to remember that voter suppression isn't about stopping every voter. it's act blocking and impeding those voters who are inconvenient. >> reporter: the law imposes new voter i.d. requirements for absentee ballots, limits the use of ballot drop boxes and the hours they're available. restricts how voters can be provided food and water near a polling location. and it adds an additional saturday of early voting while making it optional for counties to have two sundays for early voting. >> this actually expands access. >> reporter: the republican-controlled georgia legislature approved the voting law after joe biden became the first democratic presidential candidate to win in georgia in nearly three decades. >> we are clear that that was voter suppression and intended to intimidate voters. they are like whatever they try to do, it's not going to work. we are going to show up and show out. >> reporter: kerron blair with
9:25 pm
the new georgia project says the new law may be mobilizing voters, but it's still creating obstacles. >> when we're at the polls tomorrow, how do we hand out ponchos and not get arrested? >> reporter: while it's hard to measure the impact of georgia's voting law, it's clear, enthusiasm for the georgia primary remains high. >> yes, there was a lot of hyperbole on both sides about sb 202. the question is, will those tweaks impact voters in ways that could influence the outcome of a close race? >> reporter: election officials tell me overall they do expect to see record turnout for a primary. the last time they saw a record was during the 2018 georgia primary, where roughly 1.3 million people cast their ballots. that's according to the secretary of state's office. i've been speaking to voting activists and they tell me they're working even harder this time around to get out the vote, because they're concerned about this new voting law, in fact, the new georgia project says that they're aiming to get

welcome back to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. i'm john vause. you're watching "cnn newsroom." off to an incredible start. the new president of south korea is a foreign policy novice but he's already been on the world
9:31 pm
stage after a summit with u.s. president joe biden and just two weeks into the job, he's now tackling the relationship with north korea head-on. he says the age of a appeasing pyongyang is over. he spoke exclusively with cnn's paula hancocks in his first interview since his inauguration. paula joins us now from seoul. quite a few weeks for the new president. >> reporter: absolutely. two weeks in, he's already met the u.s. president and now president yoon is trying to stamp his mark on north korea. now, he has said what appears to really be a jewel track approach for north korea. he believes that the previous adminis administration's approach has failed. he said that if there is a nuclear test, we understand from joint chiefs of staff here that preparations were a missile or seventh underground nuclear test have now been completed by north korea, he says if there is a
9:32 pm
seventh nuclear test, then the response, a coordinated response by u.s. and south korea will be stronger and firmer than it has been before. he also says if kim jong-un wants to talk, it's up to him to initiate it, but he does not want north korea to collapse. he wants north korea to prosper alongside south korea. now, i also asked him about covid, as north korea, just over ten days ago, admitted that they have their first omicron covid outbreak, they say close to 3 million people believed to have fever at this time, they don't have the testing capability to know for sure that it is covid-19. they say 68 deaths, but experts believe that the death toll is probably far higher. this is what north korea's telling us. but i asked president yoon about his offer to provide vaccines, masks, testing kits, pointing out that kim jong-un would find it difficult to accept that, and
9:33 pm
i asked him how he can get around that. >> translator: if north korea accepts these medical supplies to quickly distribute them to their people, it could be through a third country or international organization. we are fully prepared. >> reporter: now, north korea through a statement in the media saying they believe that the outbreak is being brought under control, but john, as we know, a week or ten days after the first outbreak in a largely, if not completely unvaccinated population, it's unlikely to be under control. we've seen a number of elites dying and having funerals. there was one just a couple of days ago that kim young unhimself was at. he was a pal bearer and he was not wearing a mask. john? >> right. okay, well, what can you say? paula hancocks live for us in seoul. thank you. with that, we'll take a short break here. you're watching cnn. back in a moment.
